Guided by our program emphasis, we have a commitment to supporting the development of internship opportunities in tribal agencies and programs. This collaboration and support may include internship planning guidance, off-site supervision and supervision training.
Our program has a particular interest in building opportunities for current employees in tribal agencies and programs to develop meaningful employment-based internships when possible. We recognize that these students are already playing a vital role in their community and we wish to support opportunities to deepen their skills and leadership development.
Potential programs that could be considered for field placement sites include:
- Tribal TANF
- Tribal Family Resource Centers
- HS-based Clinics
- Behavioral Health
- Indian Child Welfare
- Vocational Rehab
- Tribal Head Start
- Suicide Prevention
- Family Strengthening
- Health and Wellness
- Food Sovereignty
- Language & Cultural Revitalization
- Youth Programs
We also support non-tribal identified students in tribal services settings, as available. Every internship setting establishes it's own application and screening process, and determines what will make a good match for placing a student intern.
